We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Review of Slow Ways Route Larros 1 (Larkhall to Rosebank)
I walked this route in reverse on a sunny day in November 2022. It is a diverse and interesting route which begins on the main A72 in Rosebank and climbs up through woodland and farmland before zigzagging through more farmland and descending into Larkhall. The going is muddy and/or uneven in places, so much so that it may not be suitable for some cyclists and other wheeled users. There are also some quiet, overgrown sections which may put off the lone traveller. However I found the route a perfectly acceptable, if rather indirect route between the two population centres it links.
The first section out of Rosebank is a steep climb through a beech wood on a packed earth path (covered in leaves when I walked it). Soon, the landscape opens up and there are wonderful views as the route (now narrow and muddy) passes between fields to arrive at Netherburn Road. This road is crossed and followed for a few hundred metres (along a narrow pavement) until the route tuns left onto quieter country roads. The going is easy along this stretch with tarmac underfoot. However care must be taken as there is no pavement. Eventually the route turns right into the Struther and Swinhill Road (closed to traffic). The surface of the route deteriorates as it continues and becomes little more than a muddy track before regaining its tarmac a few hundred metres before reaching the busy A71. After crossing here, the route follows another narrow road (Swinhill Road – Shaws Road) which again becomes a grass track (albeit wider than before). After a little while, there is a sharp left turn leading to a footbridge over the M74. The path now again becomes narrow, muddy and remote. However it eventually emerges into the open in Hareleeshill Park. A short walk down Keir Hardie Road leads to Machan Road, which in turn leads to the centre of Larkhall, the train station and the end of the route.
